(Not only have I been remiss in writing this post, but our 9-month photo shoot was a bit of a disaster! We’ll have another one of these around your 1 year birthday–so soon!–and then we’ll have to figure something else out, since we’ll be out of stickers!)

Vital Statistics: At your 9 month checkup you weighed in at 25.5 pounds, and now at almost 11 months you’re definitely over 26. You’re still in the 99+ percentile for weight but you seem to be slowing down a bit.

New Year!

Will have a post up soon documenting Emmett’s ninth month (he’s been out for as long as he was in!) but wanted I pop in here to wish everyone a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and a joyous 2014!

2013: 12 months of Emmett!

EDB Update: Month 8!

Untitled

Vital Statistics: No idea. You don’t have another checkup until January! If I had to guess I’d say you’re pushing 25 pounds now, but that might just be my tired arms talking. We can definitely see that your face has started thinning out a bit, and we’ll be sad when those delicious arm rolls are gone for good.

Farewell, arm rolls. Sniff.

EDB update: Months 6 and 7!

Oh no! We missed our 6-month update! I blame the government shutdown, which is a handy scapegoat for just about everything lately.

UntitledVital Statistics: At your 6-month checkup, you weighed 22 pounds 12 ounces, and measured in at 27.5 inches. That’s 99th percentile for weight, as usual, and around 75th percentile for height. You are the size of an average 16-month-old, which is excellent! Such a healthy guy! Now that you are 7 months old, we’re guessing you’re closer to 24 pounds. The fact that we’re buying you 18-month clothing is a little crazy, but we wouldn’t have you any other way.

EDB Update: Month 5

Vital Statistics: We weighed you at Grammy’s house (she has a scale!) using the tried and true weigh-the-adult-then-weigh-the-adult-holding-the-baby method and got 21 pounds. TWENTY ONE POUNDS! I looked up the growth charts online and baby, you are not on them. You are amazing.

Daycare Drama

Here’s the craziness that is daycare in DC (punctuated by silly pictures of the baby for comic relief):

-First, you have to get on waitlists. Most waitlists are about a year long. Which means that you need to put yourself on a waitlist BEFORE YOU ARE PREGNANT. But you don’t get started on this until your second trimester because you don’t want to jinx anything.

-Oh, and also, you have to pay a fee to get on the waitlist. Give them money for them to NOT guarantee you a spot. You spend hundreds of dollars this way.

EDB Update: Month 4

Vital Statistics: At your 4-month checkup you measured 25.75 inches (74th percentile) and weighed 18 pounds 5 ounces (94th percentile)! Your mom and dad couldn’t stop smiling as all the doctors and nurses commented on how big and healthy you are. We are so proud!

You had your first cold on the 4th of July, but that didn’t stop us from hitting up the parade!
